I use a few meat guys, they all fight over pricing and end up getting really good deals when vending orders start rolling in. I am luckily at the point, if I want a case of pork butts they deliver it at a price if I ordered 15 cases. Try to find one or two go to guys. I have found swift ribs to be the best price in my area, smithfield a close second when shopping brands from different distributors. The swifts come in cases of fifteen frozen in blocks and the smithfields also 15 to a case in 3 pack cryos. I pay on average 1.89 a pound for 2.5 st louis. I order mostly IBP for pork and brisket, and pay around .95 for bone in butts and 1.85-1.95 for choice packers. Hope that helps and you can haggle with prices.

I stay away from sysco and other large foodservice companies only because they have traveling salesmen and they are real pains in the arse!
